Her name is Tori.
She is a maroon '04 Ford Taurus. Don't hate. Tori is quite good-looking.
We are very excited about Tori because she was inexpensive and a great deal! Tori only has 45,000 miles and she only cost us $4,000! What a great find! We got paid $367 for Casey's old car (RIP Monty the Montero). So, in all, this only ended up costing us $3,693 (when you include that we paid an extra $60 for another micro-chipped key). It's crazy that we a got a new car for only $500 more dollars than fixing Casey's car would have been. We were quoted around $3,200 to get a new engine in his car.
What a blessing!!!
I have to admit, when Casey called and told me that his car died on the highway and was going to cost that much to fix... I felt doomed. And I had a bad attitude about it. I was genuinely mad. I wasn't disappointed, I was mad. That's not really okay. Or I don't think it should be my attitude.
Now I feel blessed though, and I hope to try to remember this the next time we have car problems OR something else like this happens.
To remember Monty by...
She's Aggie Maroon=)
I love that she is so clean on the inside! It feels rare to get a used car with absolutely NO inside blemishes!
Tomorrow's Friday everyone! Yay!!!
